Very cool.

This bust of St. Dominic was commissioned by Pope Pius XII, who was a Dominican tertiary, and is based upon measurements of his skull.

One of the early Dominicans, Sr. Cecilia, left this vivid description of Dominic:

He was of middle height, his countenance beautiful with little coloring, his hair and beard very fair, and his eyes strikingly fine. A certain radiance shone from his forehead and from under his eyelashes attracting love and respect. His hands were long and beautiful, and his voice strong and sonorous...He was always radiant and joyful, except when moved to compassion by some misfortune of his neighbors.
